It was great to answer local people's questions at the 'Ask Charlie' event at Dover Town Hall. Top of the agenda was the future of our Port and a fair share of healthcare in Dover and Deal but we questions were answered on a whole range of topics. It was a brilliant question evening and people let me know their strength of feeling towards getting a community say and investment in our Port, as well as protecting our health services. I was joined by NHS and Port representatives on the platform. Over 250 attended and people told me they got a lot out of the event.
After the Q&A session, it was great to join friends at Dover's first ever micro pub, Rack of Ale. There were a great selection of ales and even better company. The pub is just off the Dover High Street on Park Place and we chatted with landlord, Steve Jenkins. Micro-pubs are a success story for our pub trade, keeping it small and simple. It's great to see the Rack of Ale doing so well and it's well worth a visit!
